Science of Correctly Fitted PPE

Oct 04, 2023

Sponsored by Fisher Scientific


There is science behind how well personal protective equipment (PPE) fits your workers. Whether it’s eyewear, respirators, hearing protection, or fall protection, PPE can be designed to fit a wide variety of body shapes and sizes. In this webinar, you’ll learn how safety professionals use science to evaluate the fit of PPE on each worker.

What You Will Learn

  • Review the range of PPE available to help fit a diverse workforce
  • Examine how correctly fitted PPE is not only essential for safety, but is also more comfortable and thus more likely to be worn
  • Assess personal fit testing and how it may be used to help ensure each worker has properly fitted PPE
